It is that time of year again!
The time of year where parents rejoice as they send their unruly offspring back to school, pawning them off on other adults for a few hours five days out of the week. With the new school year comes a new semassacre at the prestigious #SlasherU which provides the kind of collegiate experience where "the bad seeds succeed" as the offspring of some of entertainment's most deranged monsters, killers, and psychos expand their horizons in hopes of one day carrying on their parents' legacies.
Today marks the first #SlasherSaturday on MoviePilot and, naturally, we're kicking things off with the heavy hitters of series one, aptly titled "The Deathers."
Who are "The Deathers"? That's an easy enough question to answer: they are, quite simply, the most dominant and popular clique in the social hierarchy of #SlasherU and the one horrority every female slasher wishes she could be a part of, a riff on the classic Winona Ryder dark comedy Heathers with a triple dose of Mean Girls added in for good measure!
Led by the nefarious and undoubtedly evil Makayla Myers, The Deathers relish in making life miserable for everyone... slashers and survivors alike! Let's meet the five formidable members, shall we?
The seductively evil Makayla is the daughter of the legendary Michael Myers ("Halloween") and the cheerleader-turned-succubus Jennifer Check ("Jennifer's Body"). She happily rides on the coattails of her father's legacy and truly believes she's entitled to whatever she deems fit given her pedigree. Care to see her unmasked?
Obviously taking after her mother in the looks department, Makayla's signatures include polka dots, ample cleavage (that Mr. Myers would strongly disapprove of), and her headband. To learn more about "the First Daughter of Evil," take a gander at her nifty dieography!
Of course, being the self-professed queen bee of #SlasherU is a job that can't be carried out alone. It's a good thing that Makayla has her best friend by her side as her second-in-command, the sassy and spiteful daughter of a certain dream-stalker from Elm Street...
Following the canon of Freddy's Dead: The Final Nightmare, Kathryn Krueger is the daughter of Fred and Loretta Krueger. She has her father's raunchy and twisted sense of humor while also being a complete and total "daddy's girl." In any kind of scuffle or skirmish between the opposing cliques of the school, "Kitty" - as her father and close friends sometimes refer to her - is often the mouthiest person!
Kitty's dieography will help you get a better grasp at this dream stalker with the acidic tongue.
Not all of The Deather are alike, however, as one member out of the five core ones feels an obligation to be part of the group because of her father's legacy, despite the fact that she admits to not being fond of her fellow would-be slashers.
Luckily, Crystal - whose mother is another campground killer in Angela Baker ("Sleepaway Camp") - doesn't have her father's, um... strong facial features.
The least-likely member to get involved in turf wars or confrontations with other students, Crystal's primary objective is merely to focus on her studies so she can do right by her folks who took out a loan against their own summer camp just to send her and her brother Angel to such a prestigious school.
Naturally, in any group of friends, there's that one person who is just a slight bit kookier than the rest. But it can't all be Heather Visage's fault, right... considering she's probably the byproduct of incest...
Paying homage to her father, Heather Sawyer "diva-fied" his own nickname to become Heather Visage. An expert seamstress, cook, and handywoman, Heather is a rather self-sufficient young lady, even though she's slightly off her rocker.
But at least she's pretty underneath that mask, which she claims is her mother's face.

And finally, if Heather's dieography didn't give it away, introducing the final core member of the group - rounding out The Deathers - and Heather's own "partner-in-crime," the vain and shallow Honey Robitaille.
While all of The Deathers are beautiful in their own way, Honey is truly the vainest of them all, always gazing at her own reflection or primping her appearance... sometimes to the detriment of the horrority's overall goal at that moment or even to her own studies! Don't believe me? Just ask her...
Finally, you can see all of The Deathers - masked and unmasked - together in all their glory!
